When you are scanning content on the local machine, it bypasses the 
backend and queries the local filesystem directly, which is why there 
are no logs pertaining to scanning on the backend.  The issue is that it 
does query the backend to discover what machines are available for 
scanning, and backend thinks it is "C2Q", while the storage group is 
defined for "c2q".  Those routines are not written to be case 
insensitive.  I'll have it fixed later today.  Thanks for catching this.
